The Patriot and The Pussy

We all know them. They were always the kids in high school or college who never took responsibility for their actions. When problems would arise the first thing these people would do was attempt to blame it on someone else. Whose idea was it to take Dad's car for a spin without his permission? Well Dad it was Johnnies idea, he talked me into it so he's to blame. Whose idea was it to have a party at the house while your parents were out? It was Jeffery's idea Dad, he talked me into it. I think we all get the picture.

We always referred to these type of people as pussies or wusses. These cowards never had the stones to accept responsibility and relied on the predictable whining to get them off. It was “who me” or “don't blame me” etc.. Most astute teachers and parents with any smarts and a bit of common sense could see through these sissy “blame someone else excuses”. The dog ate my homework. LOL.

Conversely, those that failed to blame others, even if the blame may have been deserved were always viewed as having courage and class. These type of people were viewed favorably for having the courage to take responsibility for their own actions and not trying to build themselves up at the expense of others.

Well high school is long past and college is just a keg party memory. But, we still run into some of these wusses in business. Why didn't you make your project dates? Well Linda didn't give me the design on time. Amy was out sick for a week. Yada yada yada... Again, a good manager will spot these whiners in a heart beat. Contrast this with, why is the project late? The project has had some problems, but I've put together a recovery plan. If you're a manager, which employee would you hire? One employee blames his problems on others and the other employee accepts responsibility and puts together a plan to solve the problem.

OK, I'll give you two names and you tell me which is the sissy and which is the mature responsible adult. Barack Obama and Dick Cheney.

Yesterday we revisited the immature, whining of a wuss attempting to blame a problem on someone else. It's easy for a small man to read a teleprompter eight years after the United States was attacked. It takes a real man to understand what it was like to watch three thousand Americans die in a most horrific manner and understand that he is charged with the responsibility of protecting fellow citizens and preventing further attacks. In addition, a real man does not blame the attack on America.

There were five significant terrorist attacks during the Clinton years. It is a fact that the 9/11 attacks were fully planned on Bill Clinton's watch (read the 9/11 report), yet George Bush didn't blame Bill Clinton to gain cheap political points. In the 9/11 commission report it was stated that the original attack plan date was during Clinton's last year in office but had to be moved out.

Fast forward eight years and the Democrats along with Obama have done nothing but take the low, cowardly road and blame the Bush administration for everything they can concoct. Most of this blame is not for the welfare of the country but for political and ideological advantage. This is disgraceful.

The old saying holds that cream rises to the top. Yesterday, the world watched as cream rose to the top. We had the whinny little man, Barack Obama and we had a patriot Dick Cheney, a real man who cares about the safety of our country. For the sissy Obama it was all politics and campaign rhetoric. For Cheney it was clear, articulate statement of what the facts really are related to the safety of this country. Cheney has nothing to gain and answers to no one. Obama is a puppet for the anti-American, anti-military far left. In the UK they call Obama “pantywaist” which apparently is their term for wuss.

The UK article correctly points out that the world and our enemies have no real respect for Barack Obama. Say what you want but even after all the smears and hate from America's dinosaur media, many may not love Dick Cheney but he had the respect of world leaders and our enemies.
